Welcome to the T&TH forums, greenhead.
It may be the hunting pressure that is making the gobblers go quiet, but sometimes there must be more to it than hunting pressure. Here, birds I heard on the day before the season opener from across the valley were quiet on day 1 of the season, and have been quiet ever since.
It will be interesting to see the answers to your question. Aside from hunting pressure, what makes gobblers go silent?
